Kings District RCMP arrested a youth in relation to a threatening text received by a student at the West Kings District High School in Auburn earlier today. 

As a precaution, the WKDHS was immediately placed in "Hold and Secure" as RCMP rushed to the scene. 

At approximately 11:20 a.m., RCMP arrested a 16-year-old youth in New Minas without incident and took him into custody.

A planned early dismissal was delayed due to this incident however students have now been released for the weekend. The investigation is continuing.
